    Project Overview

    Larvol (Larvol)  is seeking to hire Brandit, LLC (Brandit) to rebuild and redesign their website as well as reimagine their overall content strategy and user flow in order to drive conversions for their software that targets directors and executives in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. 

    About Brandit

    Brandit is a full-service branding, content strategy and front-end development and UI/UX design company that has worked with a wide range of businesses from venture-backed startups to Fortune 500 companies looking to redevelop their online presence. 

    Our company started over 5 years ago after our founder struggled to get a basic website built. He found that in the world of website development, a large portion of service providers are building websites that are either built on proprietary platforms that lock clients’ into expensive hosting plans, or they are built with hard-coded templates making them extremely difficult to edit by your internal team without coding knowledge.

    This motivated us to create a WordPress platform that empowers internal teams to edit their website easily while leveraging a powerful cloud platform and WordPress framework. Our websites combine WordPress’ most widely used page-builder with a validated framework of plugins that are tailored to your business goals. This framework is both easy-to-use by your internal team and capable of producing some of the most advanced design elements available on the web today. These sites can be built and run on any managed WordPress host, or we also offer fully-managed hosting plans that run on dedicated AWS and Digital Ocean containers which are capable of scaling to millions of monthly users.

    Our Approach 

    We use an adaptive, multi-milestone project structure that evolves as we collaborate with your team to create the best end-product. This process is designed to help us dig into the details of your brand and organization during discovery in order to create the messaging and visual system that captures your brand in a beautiful, high-converting website that integrates with your existing sales systems. 

    Timing

    The site should launch within 60-90 days from the initial discovery meeting. Timing is subject to approvals and content being provided in a timely manner.

    Statement of Work and Estimates

    Price estimates are based on initial objectives and may change as mutually agreed upon tasks and objectives change. Cost estimates and payment schedules are provided in four milestones.

    Total Estimated Cost: $10,500

    Milestone 1: Discovery, Wireframing, Branding, Content Strategy and Scope of Work
    25% Deposit ($2625) of Total Project Fee is Due to Start Work

    Weeks 1

    Brandit and the Larvol team will schedule at least two initial conference calls that may be followed by additional phone calls and emails to discuss the core strategy and goals of the website design and development project. During the first milestone Brandit will provide the following services:

    • Confirm site requirements for branding and design as well as sitemap and functionality.
    • Define any plugins or additional development needed to execute on website deliverables such as Google Tag Manager, CRM integration, contact forms, live chat widgets, Leadfeeder etc. 
    • Work closely with Larvol to define key user groups that have the largest footprint on the organization’s growth to create up to 4 key user personas.
    • Examine the list leading websites and organizations in the space with a discussion of which aspects of these brands are most appealing and effective.
    • Use these user personas in combination with our discovery discussion on brand tone, vision and messaging to create a detailed wireframe and content strategy deliverable that includes low-fidelity mockups of all primary website pages for Larvol.com. This document will have both content strategy and design notes for each page and will be used as a general scope of work to describe the final website deliverable that will be ready at launch.

    Milestone 2: Primary Design and Development Sprint
    We’ll begin work after 50% of the total project fee ($5250) has been deposited and we receive final wireframe and branding approval.

    Week 2-3 – Design

    With the wireframes, content strategy,  Brandit will spin up a development server on our platform and begin our initial design and development sprint. During Milestone 2, Brandit will perform the following services:

    • Work closely with the Larvol team to create finalized homepage designs for both sites that draw from the new wireframe deliverables that was created in the first milestone. This home page sets the tone and design style for other internal pages on the website.
    • Customize and configure the theme, user experience, and content organization based on the approved wireframes. Mobile views of the website design will vary based on screen size and platform and will not look exactly the same for all users. However, all designs will be fully responsive and take a mobile-first approach.
    • Create initial internal page layouts designs and submit to Larvol for revisions and approval.

    Weeks 3-4 Site Development, Internal Page Design, Taglines and 3rd Party Integrations & Content Development

    • Create initial designs and layouts for internal pages using the designs created in Milestone 2 as a broad layout guide.
    • Install and start configuration for any additional plugins needed for site functionality and 3rd party integrations as defined during Discovery. This will include integration with an event registration tool, donation software integration by embedding and (if possible) styling JS code, job listing custom post types that are easily managed by internal team members, and social media feeds. 
    • Create final graphics for headers and featured graphics as needed using images and content provided by Larvol. 
    • Create up to 4 isometric illustrations (or objects) that can be used as interactive elements throughout the site. 
    • Work closely with the Larvol team to develop the first draft of taglines for all website pages.


    Milestone 3: Design Revisions, Speed Optimization, SEO

    We’ll begin work after 75% of the total project fee ($7875) has been deposited.

    Weeks 4

    After the initial designs have been sent over you, the next weeks will include revision rounds, speed optimization, and SEO. During these weeks, Brandit will provide the following services:
